Today’s focus: White Day
This Japanese event is related to Valentine’s Day. In Japan on Valentine’s Day, it is girls and women presenting chocolate gifts, usually to boys or men.
Occurring one month later than Valentine’s Day, on White day it is the boys and men who are expected to return the favour by giving gifts such as cookies, jewelry, white chocolate, white lingere , and marshmallows.
Daily Trivia: The oldest known name for the Island of Great Britain is Albion, possibly from the Latin Alba, meaning White, because this is what England, specifically Dover, looks like from the coast of France.
